Campaign To Save NY Gay Bar Julius’; A New Gay Beach In Pompano; Ryan Field Books

Campaign To Save NY Gay Bar Julius’

I’ve been in business for myself almost all my life, and as a business person I’ve always believed that if a business can’t make enough money to at least break even, it’s time to move on. With that said, not everyone agrees with me and some people will hang on for as long as they possibly can. And it’s not always about the money. In this case it’s about the history, too. This I totally agree with. 

Julius’ Bar in NYC’s West Village is the site of the now-famous 1966 ‘Sip In’ to protest against LGBTQ discrimination, and it’s in danger of shutting down for good. A campaign has been launched to help it stay open.

Here’s a link to the rest.  It’s worth reading. 

A New Gay Beach In Pompano

Two very good older friends of mine who are not here with us anymore would have loved to read this article because they had a condo in Pompano Beach and they wintered there for many years. They were together as a couple over 50 years. They’re both gone now, and they never had a chance to see legal gay marriage, but they really would have loved this. 

A group of Pompano Beach residents gathered together on June 28 to raise the rainbow flag on the beach and unofficially proclaim a section of it as Stonewall Beach. 

Here’s more. There’s a great photo, too.

Don’t Be Afraid of Virginia’s Woolf



“A wonderful story that I loved. The characters were well developed, and strong. Gus: A sweet young man. Doing something for all the wrong reasons. Craig: his boyfriend, he’ll go along with anything Gus say. Henry: Gus father a no nonsense man, who’s husband died last year. I enjoyed this story.”

What readers said about “Altered Parts”
“Best Gay Novel In Years. This story will stay with you and you will feel you know every character and the beauty of their home in the mountains of North Carolina.”

Altered Parts

Altered Parts by [Field, Ryan]

While the book is easily readable, it also addresses emotions stereotypes and relationships. I would have preferred it be 3 times as long and tragically most guys don’t find happy endings as depicted.. but in a short book, it provides food for thought, clarity and insight.. far more and better expressed than 99% of gay fiction . I don’t think it could have been done better.
